Are you sure it does not come on, or no video (black screen)? Plugging in the cable should not affect the TV turning on. The only possible way I can think of that hooking up a cable would shut down the power is if you have a ground fault. The shield of the cable should be earth ground. If your TV had a power leakage, grounding the chasis by attaching the cable might blow a fuse. This seems highly unlikely, however.

How to hook up the antenna


If you are not using cable or Sat. TV, you need a DIGITAL outdoor antenna, preferably outdoors for better reception. Forget the garbage indoor window or set top systems as they will not pull in a good signal, unless you are near the TV Stations transmitters. Cosco or WalMart has TV Outdoor systems.

How to hook up antenna to rca p46924


Just follow the cable hook up against the hookup on your tv. The antenna should be hooked up to an output labeled cable in.

The coaxial cable antenna broke on my RCA tv


The part is called a Female Belling-Lee Socket. Radio Shack, or anywhere that sells antennas, CB radios, repairs TV sets, should have one. Soldering it in, is another matter. Be careful.

How do you hook up to dish network? there is no spot on the back of the tv to hook up the regular tv cord coming out from the cable box.


At the bottom right of this model there should be a connector labelled Antenna/Cable - if not there, use the ones labelled Composite Inputs and connect the yellow red and white cables fom the output of the satellite box there. (you'll need a the a/v cables)

Dont know how to get cable channels , i just get local channels.


Hello.

It sounds like you need to change a setting before running the auto or channel scan. On the same menu screen that has the option for running the channel scan, you should see a setting that has next to it the word "AIR" or "ANTENNA". If this isn't changed to "CABLE" or "CATV" then the TV will only scan for a limited number of channels because it assumes you have an antenna hooked up to it instead of a cable line. This is the same for all TVs. Anytime someone runs a channel scan on ANY TV and they only pick up a limited number of channels, they need to change the setting I've described. And remember, it will be on the same menu screen that you go to in order to run the channel scan.

I hope I've provided you useful assistance and that this information allows you to make an informed decision as to how to proceed from here.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.

P.S. On some TVs, autoscan is called autoprogram.

Rca 52 in rear projection... start up menu always on


The setup menu will repeat until it is completed and/or something is hooked up.

On my TV it kept reoccurring until I connected up the wire from the roof antenna, even though I had cable already installed.

Check your manual for setup instructions or if you do not have one, Google the make, model number and "owners manual" to see one online.

Hope this helps. :)

88Amber, are you sure your connecting the cable to Antenna input? many tv`s have more than one screw on connector on the back of the set, your menu may be set to "Antenna 1 " and it`s possible you have the cable attatched to Antenna 2, check your hook-up with a flashlight, hope this helps

RCA D52W17 ANTENNA/CABLE ANALOG INPUT


That is an ITC222 chassis and one of the more dependable RCA units built. The "F" connector is the part you're referring to and it's not something that carries a specific part number for that unit. In the shop here we simply buy them by the box and the tuner will have to be removed to install a new connector. The new one will be soldered to the chassis of the tuner and less likely to break in the future. Not something you probably want to do yourself, but at least you'll know what to ask the shop when you're calling around for estimates.
